DAILY(5)			     BSD File Formats Manual				 DAILY(5)

NAME
     daily, daily.conf -- daily maintenance

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/daily script is run, by default, every night on a NetBSD system.	The
     /etc/daily.conf file specifies which of the standard daily services are performed.

     The variables described below can be set to ``YES'' or ``NO'' in the /etc/daily.conf file.
     Most default to ``YES'', but not all.  Check the /etc/defaults/daily.conf file if you are in
     doubt.  (Note that you should never edit /etc/defaults/daily.conf directly, as it is often
     replaced during system upgrades.)

     find_core			This runs find(1) over the entire local filesystem, looking for
				core files.

     run_msgs			This runs msgs(1) with the -c argument.

     expire_news		This runs the /etc/expire.news script.

     purge_accounting		This ages accounting files in /var/account.

     run_calendar		This runs calendar(1) with the -a argument.

     check_disks		This uses the df(1) and dump(8) to give disk status, and also
				reports failed raid(4) components.

     show_remote_fs		In check_disks, show remote file systems, which are not reported
				on by default.

     check_mailq		This runs mailq(1).

     check_network		This runs netstat(1) with the -i argument, and also checks the
				rwhod(8) database, and runs ruptime(1) if there are hosts in
				/var/rwho.

     full_netstat		By default, check_network outputs a summarized version of the
				netstat(1) report.  If a full version of the output run with the
				-inv options is desired, set this variable.

     run_fsck			This runs fsck(8) with the -n option.

     run_rdist			This runs rdist(1) with /etc/Distfile.

     run_security		This runs the /etc/security script looking for possible security
				problems with the system.

     run_skeyaudit		Runs the skeyaudit(1) program to check the S/Key database and
				informs users of S/Keys that are about to expire.

     run_makemandb		If the /etc/man.conf file exists, runs the makemandb(8) utility
				to update the man.db database for use by apropos(1).

     fetch_pkg_vulnerabilities	Refreshes the local database of package vulnerabilities.  See the
				settings in security.conf(5) for details on the actual package
				checks.

     The variables described below can be set to modify the tests:

     find_core_ignore_fstypes	Lists filesystem types to ignore during the find_core phase.
				Prefixing the type with a '!' inverts the match.  For example,
				'procfs !local' will ignore 'procfs' type filesystems and
				filesystems that are not 'local'.

     find_core_ignore_paths	Lists paths to ignore during the find_core phase.  For example,
				'/export' will not descend into any directories under the
				'/export' hierarchy. This, on a file server, allows to skip user
				data while still scanning system files.

     run_fsck_flags		Extra options to be passed to fsck(8) if run_fsck is enabled.

     send_empty_security	If set, the report generated by the run_security phase will
				always be sent, even if it is empty.

     pkgdb_dir			DEPRECATED.  Please set PKGDB_DIR in pkg_install.conf(5) instead.

				If defined, points to the location of the packages database.
				Defaults to /var/db/pkg.
